    The Tivo records automatically. I have absolutely no desires to have them record any shows that I do not manually record. It blocks me from manual recordings. I have to delete times I never recorded and is a huge pain. Is there any way to stop Tivo from auto record and just allow me to manually record?

    Turn off TiVo suggestions in the recording options.

    A lafos said, you can turn of Tivo suggestions. Those however wouldn't prevent you from doing manual recordings. They always have the lowest priority (even lower the live TV watching) and they get deleted before anything else. Those recording always show up in the Suggestions folder and have a Tivo icon next to them. Are those your issue or was there something else (like your season passes or wishlists)?
